fixed [S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; no appID found. from being reported when running non-steam games

noodlejetski,

please don’t use the code formatting for non-code things. it’s a pain to read on mobile because the lines don’t wrap, so you have to scroll horizontally back and forth when reading long lines.

I wonder how GE figures out all those protonfixes. Like from what I’ve seen, Catherine Classic’s cutscene issues have been a thing for years now, but he just goes “protonfix go lmao” and fixes it in one go.

danyspin97,

So there is no need to run Assetto Corsa with Proton 5 before GE? That’s awesome.
